That's Some Serious Bling!
Don't ever buy me any jewelry. I'll either lose it, or it will get stolen. It's inevitable. Now, it's up to you to decide what happened to my wedding ring. Guess correctly and your name will be entered into a drawing for an I-Tunes gift card. (Yes, I finally decided on the prize.) So, here are the scenarios: #1: My wedding ring was stolen from a Dallas hotel room when my husband and I were there for the Cotton Bowl. I thought I'd never see the thing again, but much to my surprise, the maid who stole it returned it the next day. She hardly spoke any English, but from what I gathered, she was terribly sorry and begged us not to report her to authorities. My husband insisted that we should, but I talked him out of it. I have a pretty strong power of persuasion when it comes to him. Besides, the poor girl must have had a darn good reason for taking it, and she did apologize, right? #2: I'm not real sure what happened to my wedding ring. I think I inadvertently gave it to Goodwill just six weeks after my husband had a new diamond put in it. I've never seen it again, and my husband's never bought me a new one. Seriously, you'd think he'd get over it by now. But no! He insists on bringing it up about every other day. "What kind of a person loses a wedding ring?" he says. The cad! Leave your guess for which one is true in the comments. Now, for yesterday's statements. About half of you guessed correctly. I was not, nor will I ever be, a hand model. If you could only see my hands, you'd know why. My parents paid for my college, and I graduated with a degree in Accounting. Shortly after I passed the CPA exam, I found out I was pregnant with my third child. My priorities changed, and I became a stay at home mom. I did some contract Accounting work from home, but other than that, I've never used the degree. I wonder these days if I'd have been better off pursuing my passion for writing back then. Would a writing-related degree help me out in my journey to publication? What do you think?
